A People Media Project to Launch Soon

JustMedia.net: A People Media Project to Launch Soon

LONDON/SEATTLE/BARCELONA - We are writing to invite you to participate in a groundbreaking new media project: The People Media Project, aimed at promoting a broader and more balanced understanding of global issues, conflicts and concerns.

Dedicated to dialogue, democratic discourse and the availability and viability of such values in today's media, the project characterizes itself as the facilitator of productive communication between a large array of experts who represent diverse views - especially those often overlooked or discounted entirely by the media - and existing media channels.

With board members including a diverse range of internationally-renowned intellectuals and activists - such as Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Vandana Shiva and Arun Gandhi - this project aspires to become the largest and most influential of its kind everywhere.

It will utilize the proficiency of hundreds of people in many fields - democracy, human rights, politics, health, the environment, and much more - to make possible a wider and more informative discourse about such issues.

The database on our website JUSTmedia.net will provide a conduit that enables scholars, experts and activists to present their profiles to media producers worldwide.

This would give them with access to the media in times where their particular expertise and knowledge in specific areas is needed. Media producers would be able to find these individual profiles through JUSTMedia.net, and we would also circulate daily press releases to worldwide media networks and channels, passing on to them the profiles of individuals who may be able to comment on current events.

By subscribing to JUSTMedia.net, media producers will gain access to scores of scholars, activists and experts, while the latter would find opportunity to regularly share their views on crucial issues to broad audiences around the world.

Please visit our website - JustMedia.net for further details on how to become involved.

Also visit: PeopleMediaProject.com for more details on the project and its overall objectives.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
